Another Baseball Card Collection Wows on 'Antiques Roadshow'

A collection of old tobacco baseball cards ended up being worth a pretty penny for one lucky New Yorker on Monday night's episode of "Antiques Roadshow."

"A card like that in that condition can be $5,000 to $6,000 alone," said Simeon Lipman on "Antiques Roadshow."

"Oh my God," said the collection's owner.

"I wouldn't insure the collection for anything less than $200,000," said Lipman.

This woman's collection of 1900s tobacco baseball cards was appraised at a whopping $200,000. That's like a major league contract. Eh, who are we kidding? More like a minor league contract.

The collection's owner told the "Roadshow" appraiser she inherited the expansive collection from her cousin Rose.

Rose's brother actually got the tobacco cards from cigarette boxes and would put them in a cigar box for safe keeping.

His effort to preserve the collection really paid off -- one of the reasons the cards are so valuable is because they're in mint condition.

As the appraiser put it, "These look like they've just popped out of the pack. It's like a time capsule."

This isn't the first incredibly valuable baseball card collection to round the bases on the "Roadshow" in recent weeks.

A Boston Red Stockings baseball archive was valued at $1 million during an episode that aired earlier this month.

Several viewers on Twitter were shocked by the big price tag. One user tweeted, "Don't let mom throw out your baseball card collection." Such wise words.
